It may not have escaped your attention that I like to apply an intellectual sheen to these columns, by simply picking up some old, classical thread and spinning an extended metaphor about what we’re trying to do on The Psychologist. The presence of Sisyphus on our contents page, thanks to him inspiring one of our poetry competition winners (p.24), should give me plenty of material. Producing a monthly publication – increasingly a daily one online - can feel like a Sisyphean task.

But in fact, to make this link would be self. aggrandising (ironically, a character trait that got Sisyphus in trouble in the first place). Such tasks are laborious and futile. What makes it easier for us to ‘begin again’, pushing that rock up the hill, is the helping hands - from our small team to so many of you. The January issue featured the voices of more than 50 psychologists. We’re very proud of that.

In recent years we’ve aimed for more diversity, of content and contributor. Please engage, to help us reach new heights.
